George Clooney has now committed to direct as his next film Suburbicon, and he is in negotiations with Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Josh Brolin to star, I hear. Joel Silver is producing through his Silver Pictures Entertainment with Clooney and his Smokehouse partner Grant Heslov. Joel and Ethan Coen wrote the script. The film has been financed independently, and Sony Pictures is the frontrunner to distribute. Production will begin next October.
Photos of Matt and Lucy in LA are at the Daily Mail:
Matt is on a break from filming Bourne 5 until early January, and is attending a range of promotional 'awards consideration' events for The Martian.
